Stories Made Possible by You
Thanks to the generous support of people like you, we're changing the story for kids in poverty across the U.S.

We believe every child deserves a quality education. We won’t stop until we make sure that every child has what they need to succeed — in school and in life.

Transparent & Accountable to Every Gift
We want your dollars to go as far as possible, too.

That’s why we care deeply about every donation you make, no matter the size, and why First Book has earned high marks for accountability and transparency, in addition to honors from leading institutions, such as the Library of Congress, World Economic Forum, and more.

There would be no books for Davis County children without First Book.
